  • Xabi Alonso will be able to feature against South Africa after recovering from the knock he got against Equatorial Guinea. He had to leave that match but he trained with the rest of the squad on Sunday. Alonso will -unfortunately for Real Madrid- likely play against South Africa.
  • The fans want to see Isco in Khedira's spot, says 'As'. As if they were the same kind of players. Some would want to see Morata in Pepe's spot, it seems. It's true that Isco started playing in the midfield, but the team struggled quite a lot without Khedira in the lineup. Casemiro will likely get some minutes.
  • Real Madrid Castilla is in trouble. They lost 6-0 against Eibar this Sunday. They seem to be on their way to Segunda División B.
